Many deem Oversea the best Chinese restaurant in Kuala Lumpur, and for good reason. The restaurant has expanded throughout the years – first in size, then by branching out to different parts of the country. “It is known for its consistently delicious char siu (caramelised barbecued pork),” says Christian. Other must-order dishes include the ham yue fah lam poh (sliced pork belly braised until tender with salted fish and soy), steamed silver catfish and stir-fried lily bulbs with lotus roots and macadamia nuts. Dishes are normally accompanied with steamed rice and served family-style in the semi-casual dining room. “It’s great for a welcome feast in this city,” he adds.
